Trill Impact is uniquely designed for impact investments only, which means we strive to create positive impact for people and planet - alongside competitive financial returns.
Established in 2019, Trill Impact is a pioneering Impact House with around EUR 1,2 billion in assets under management across our Impact Private Equity, Impact Ventures and Microfinance investment strategies.
We are convinced that private markets will play a vital role in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, by driving change at scale and speed. We have therefore built a team of around 50 professionals consisting of experienced investment and impact & ESG experts together with other experienced professionals, based in the Nordics, Germany, Luxembourg and USA.
To follow and contribute to the development of best practice, we are applying and participating in several global and local industry initiatives. Bluemark, a leading independent provider of impact verification services, has independently verified Trill Impact’s alignment with the Operating Principles for Impact Management with the advanced results.
By combining industry best practice with our unique impact culture and investment process we aim to accelerate positive change for people, planet and investors - and encourage others to follow.
Our purpose, vision, mission and values together guide our business and our team. They also influence how we interact with external stakeholders.
Trill Impact was established to become a thought leader and force for positive change through impact private investments - inspiring others to follow.
We address global challenges and seek investments that provide solutions:
Our purpose-driven impact approach is fully integrated in our investment strategies, aiming for Real Returns and Lasting Impact, for the benefit of investors, businesses and society at large.
Vision: The first choice for mindful investors, businesses and talent who intend to drive positive impact on people and our planet, while building profitable businesses.
Mission: Real Returns and Lasting Impact - for the benefit of investors, businesses and society at large.
True to the mission
Respectful to people and planet
Trill Impact has attracted prominent institutional investors across the globe that we believe have recognized our investment focus, combining private markets experience with highly specialized impact & ESG expertise. They have joined forces with us to tackle the societal and environmental challenges the world faces.
Our investor base predominately consists of pension plans, insurance companies and asset managers from Europe as well as North- and South America with long-standing private market investment programs.
Our ambition is to build successful businesses and drive positive change, in cooperation with Trill Impact’s portfolio companies. As an active and close partner to portfolio companies' management, we will embark on a journey to accelerate profitable growth and support the companies to reach their full impact and value creation potential.
Trill Impact, with its unique impact culture, provides access to the relevant competence, connections and capital to support the companies’ growth and impact journey.
We are a European Private Investments firm, with a global investment universe. From our offices in Stockholm, Munich, Copenhagen, Luxembourg and New York, we work close to our local markets yet operating across the firm as One Trill Impact Team. We are all passionate and proud of our common purpose, to drive positive change through impact private investments.
To continue to build our unique culture we recruit people who are open to new ideas and perspectives, who proactively seek excellence in partnership with others and are passionate about making a difference.
We partner with like-minded lenders who want to drive positive social and environmental impacts through their financing solutions. For example, Trill Impact's first private equity investment was financed by the first sustainability-linked loan facility for an LBO in the Nordics and the first private equity strategy that signed a sustainability-linked revolving credit facility.
By leveraging Trill Impact's expertise in measuring and managing impact, we determine relevant impact KPIs, tied to such financing solutions, for the portfolio companies shortly after signing and set targets to track progress on a quarterly basis. We generally require interest rate rebates for a portfolio company when the targeted impact is achieved.
